that that's okay for them to beg. >> so, jonathan, telling a kid to beg begs this question. are we teaching our kids to be takers instead of makers? >> kids and man in general are inclined to trade, not to beg. we're the thinking animal. we want to trade value for value, not conquer and beg and ask for favors from other people. this young girl, this young person just like a lot of young people whether it's lemonade stands or roadside sales, they're excited about the idea of making something and having somebody pay them for it. those are the type of values we should be teaching, independence, self reliance, not more dependency from uncle sam. >> can you believe that park ranger told her she couldn't sell her mistletoe? >> it's ridiculous. we should be promoting these kinds of things in is great this girl did this. unfortunately i will not be surprised if we find out uncle sam comes knocking on her door next year asking for money. this perfectly reflects what's wrong in this country right now. there are too many rules, too many regulations. it continues to get worse. in 2012 alone, the regula
